Players can play as any of these teams and access these abilities under the right situation. For example, if face-offs are not really your strong area, playing as the Boston Bruins will give you access to Patrice Bergeron who has a quick draw ability adding to the quickness of his face-off draws.

The x factor players in NHL 23 add to the decision-making when it comes to picking a team to play as. If you are into pulling off big dekes, then maybe a team like Anaheim with Trevor Zegras makes sense, while if you are more reliant on goaltending Jacob Markstrom and the Calgary Flames could be your best bet.
